Watson的名字命名,它为少部分格外优秀的学生提供富于创新的博士教育项目。此外,冷泉港实验室还设有培训大学生的“大学生研究项目”(Undergraduate Research Program)、面向中学生的“未来合作伙伴项目”(Partners for the Future Program)、以及针对小学生的“自然研究”夏令营(Nature Study summer camp)。另外,实验室还在冷泉港村开办了“多兰DNA学习中心”(Dolan DNA Learning Center),为理科教师、学生和美国其它团体提供实验室场地。冷泉港实验室的其它组成部分还有冷泉港实验室出版社,共出版5种学术期刊和多种实验室手册和书籍;设在劳埃德港(Lloyd Harbor)的班伯里会议中心(Banbury Conference Center),举办参与者少的专业会议;还有位于伍德伯里(Woodbury)附近的癌症基因组研究中心(Cancer Genome Research Center)。 冷泉港实验室的科研工作是众多科学家集体协作的成果,具有世界影响力。每年,实验室还举办大约20场学术会议,加强交流与互动,吸引来自世界各地7000多位科研人士参与。冷泉港实验室的科学家们还与其它实验室和大学、以及生物科技和制药行业的科研人员合作,旨在把基础科研领域的新进展转化为拯救生命、丰富生活的实践。冷泉港实验室资源丰富,环境优美,年轻的科研人员都非常有兴趣作为硕士研究生或博士后在这里进行研究工作。

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) is a private, not-for-profit research and education institution at the forefront of efforts in molecular biology and genetics to generate knowledge that will yield better diagnostics and treatments for cancer, neurological diseases and other major causes of human suffering.

Home to seven Nobelists, the Laboratory was founded in 1890 as one of the first institutions in the world to specialize in genetics research. CSHL has played a pivotal role in the emergence of molecular genetics, the scientific foundation of the contemporary revolution in biology and biotechnology. At CSHL in 1953, James D. Watson presented his first public lecture on his and Francis Crick’s discovery of the double-helical structure of DNA, for which each later won a Nobel Prize. As director and then president of the Laboratory from 1968 to 2003, Watson was instrumental in developing CSHL into one of the world’s most influential cancer research centers.

Today, CSHL President Bruce Stillman leads more than 400 scientists who are pioneering the frontiers of biomedical research. A designated Center of the U.S. National Cancer Institute, CSHL has broken new ground in the study of cancer-causing genes and signaling pathways implicated in their activation. Key findings on mutations and structural variations of the human genome have been important in this work and in the Laboratory’s efforts to understand what causes devastating neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative illnesses such as autism, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. CSHL is also a global leader in plant genetics and an innovative force in the emerging discipline of quantitative biology.

The Laboratory’s perse educational activities seek to prepare both scientists and the public for “the age of the genome.” Each year 8,000 of the world’s leading life scientists are drawn to the campus for CSHL’s legendary Meetings and Courses program and seminal Banbury conferences, where new findings and next steps in research are discussed and debated. The CSHL Press publishes textbooks, laboratory manuals, and research journals that are among the most highly cited in their fields.

In 1998, the Laboratory established the Watson School of Biological Sciences, whose unique Ph.D.-granting program trains the next generation of molecular biologists. CSHL also runs the nation’s first science center dedicated to public genetics education. Since 1988, more than 325,000 middle and high school students, teachers, and families have benefited from the hands-on educational programs of the Dolan DNA Learning Center. Millions more have accessed the Center’s award-winning website.

This past year the Laboratory received its eighth consecutive 4-star rating by Charity Navigator for efficient use of donor dollars.

此次冷泉港亚洲顾问委员会议的成功召开,为明年的全球生命科学家系列会议的顺利举行奠定了良好的基础,打开了苏州和全球生命科学领域的未来之窗,届时星星之火将以燎原之势为中国生物医药的发展提供新的动力。冷泉港亚洲首席執行官季茂业博士的总结正可以浓缩这一合作的重要意义:“冷泉港实验室同苏州的联姻是东西文化交会的一个亮点。苏州自古风雅,文人俊士星罗棋布,是中华文化的雅靜后园;而美国冷泉港清幽朴实,有诺奖得主摇篮之称,是西方科学文明格物致知的一个典型。因此这个联姻是上接姑苏千年文章,下传四海广博学问,东西文明的有机交会。意义广泛而深远!”

Cold Spring Harbor Asia conferences will be held at Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center in Suzhou, China, sixty miles west of Shanghai and in easy reach of international and domestic airports. Suzhou is an ancient city known as the Venice of China, famous for its canals and private gardens and home to scholars for more than two millenia.

Symposia, conferences and summer schools follow the Cold Spring Harbor tradition in showcasing merit-based scientific advances in an informal but intense atmosphere. The center will open in early 2010 and is anticipated to become a major international hub for the life sciences in Asia including fundamental themes in biology, biomedicine, biotechnology, pharmaceutical and clinical sciences, biological chemistry, bioIT and computational biology and interdisciplinary studies that have a significant life science component.

医疗在资本国家都是姓公,这是有深层次的原因的。

没有竞争,就没有发展。计划经济头脑。保基本(性公),其它没什么关糸。谁服务好,老百姓信任谁。
